If you don't yet have BLAG 04, and would like to get your hands on that and BLAG 03, then until the end of May I'll be despatching both issues to new annual members. I'm also throwing in $15 off the usual price for the first year...

BLAG Meet is a free online event that gives you the opportunity to meet and hear from contributors to each issue of the magazine.

Below you can catch up with the recordings from BLAG Meet: Inside Issue 04, which took place on Saturday, 2 March 2024. Thank you to all the contributors and attendees that took part across the day.

The Fairground Painters with Amy Goodwin was originally scheduled to be part of this event, but is now happening today at 19:30 London time.

The next BLAG Meet will be on Saturday, 9 November, so pencil that into your diary. In the meantime, you can also check out the recordings from last year's BLAG Meet: Inside Issue 03.
